Liverpool’s biggest absentee is right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, which means James Milner might step in to replace him once again.

Harvey Elliott remains on the sidelines with an ankle injury, while Thiago is unlikely to feature due to a calf injury.

Naby Keita is back in contention, while Roberto Firmino is fit again to start up front.

Predicted Liverpool starting XI: Alisson; Milner, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

Oleksandr Zinchenko is out for Man City with a calf injury, while Ilkay Gundogan has a thigh problem and has been left out of Germany’s squad for the upcoming October internationals.

Pep Guardiola has no more injury headaches to deal with, but may decide to rotate his team after a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League this week.

Predicted Man City starting XI: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Silva, Rodri De Bruyne; Foden, Grealish, Jesus.
